Institutes & Facilities

Five specialized institutes affiliated with the College of the Environment offer our students additional research support and academic opportunities. Each institute maintains facilities that provide training in experiment methodology and the use of advanced laboratory equipment. In collaboration with outside institutions and community organizations, these institutes also offer College of the Environment students access to real-world research projects via a variety of paid and unpaid internship opportunities.

In addition to our institutes, College of the Environment houses a number of laboratories, where faculty members train students in the environmental sciences as well as to conduct research on a variety of topics.
